The article reports that the studies from wide single nucleotide polymorphism association showed that diabetogenes affect type 2 diabetes. Doctor C. Ronald Kahn of the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Massachusetts states that the 9 loci affecting type 2 diabetes only explain familial clustering in a small proportion. He adds that starting with insulin resistance, there are a progressive pathogenesis for type 2 diabetes, beta cell dysfunction, and impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes.

    CD36 variants have been associated with type 2 diabetes, features of the metabolic syndrome, and alterations in lipid metabolism. In contrast, the effect of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CD36 on insulin resistance is controversial in literature. Therefore, we investigated whether...

    OBJECTIVE--Functional studies suggest that the nonsynonymous K121Q polymorphism in the ectoenzyme nucleotide pyrophosphate phosphodiesterase 1 (ENPP1) may confer susceptibility to insulin resistance; genetic evidence on its effect on type 2 diabetes, however, has been conflicting. We therefore...

    Background: Elevated plasma levels of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) has been reported to be associated with insulin resistance and micro/macrovascular diabetic complications, and may predict cardiovascular events in type 2 diabetic patients.
